Several videos caught former White House staffer Sebastian Gorka shouting and getting into the face of a journalist who taunted him Thursday inside the Rose Garden.
In a video leading up to the confrontation, Karem said the audience was a “group of people that are eager for demonic possession.” When Gorka shouted back at Karem, he said, “We can go outside and have a long conversation.”
“You’re a punk! You’re not a journalist! You’re a punk!” Gorka shouted at Brian Karem, a CNN political analyst and reporter for Playboy.
Guests who were invited to the social media summit cheered on Gorka; another person can be heard saying he should not be “attacking journalists like this.”
A Secret Service agent then tried to keep the two groups separate.
